recipe of the day

this is my first recipe post! i made this cake for a gathering on sunday and forgot to take a picture of it before it was devoured. this is pretty much all that is left (along with some "cake mush") so, without further ado...

Pistachio Cake

For cake
1 package yellow cake mix
1 package pistachio instant pudding
3 eggs
1 cup lemon-lime soda
1 cup oil
1/2 cup chopped nuts

For icing
1.5 cup milk
1 envelope of Dream Whip
1 package pistachio instant pudding

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Mix all ingredients for cake in a large bowl until well-blended.
3. Bake in greased bundt pan for 50 minutes.
4. Cool for 15 minutes in pan and then remove from pan and place on cooling rack.
5. Once cake is cool, split into two layers.
6. For icing, mix all ingredients on high speed until thick (at least five minutes).
7. Ice in between layers and place together, then ice the rest of the cake. (The icing will be a pale green. In honor of the Christmas season, I then sprinkled red sugar crystals on top and it gave the cake a "wreath" look.)

i hope you enjoy! beki, i haven't forgotten your tag. i am going to do it tomorrow.
